Celebrating nz music month!

Record a piece by a NZ composer or write and record a piece yourself!




I'm Kathryn, a NZ based piano and composition teacher. I teach from my studio in Springfield, Rotorua and online.

Music's a great way for students to keep busy, be creative and connect.

If you're interested in joining us - I'd love to hear from you.
